Re: Poker Theory: Position and Blind Defence

[ QUOTE ]
I am a position nit. For the longest time I would not defend my blinds. Finally, though, I started realizing that it isn't hard to figure out who is raising light from LP and then...

Re: When to commit with PP\'s on ragged overboards.

I do think you need to have a plan for the hand before you bet the flop. The thing is, if you bet you should probably expect one of two options from him : raise or fold. If he raises he probably...

Re: Overbetting: When to use it?

A less common, but effective, overbet is when the river ensures the pot is [almost certainly] split but you represent a stronger hand.

Here is an example from this afternoon...

Not much time, but I often use it against calling players when I have the goods. They still tend to call a 1.5x to 2x bet.

Re: NL100: AT makes TP OOP and gets raised on the flop

I agree with both of you that coming in with a raise with ATs in EP is not a default play but on the right tables / with the right villains, I def have no problem with it.

Re: NL100: AT makes TP OOP and gets raised on the flop

Open-limping OOP in NL, without LRRing, is exploitable. Smart TAGs can pretty consistently raise your open-limps and force you to tough decisions. In general, don't you find that playing...

Let me also say this...

This hand shouldn't be a default raise preflop in EP unless you have a table-specific reason.

P.S. This isn't a "drawy flop".

This is not as drawy a flop as say 9s8sX, but it is a drawy flop. I see no merits in checking this flop behind.

Loosen up big time in LP. You can play so many more hands in LP than you are.

FWIW, nearly every time I see a stats post the poster plays too tight on the button, IMO. I think that...

I like FTP. I have rakeback there and it's softer. I still play at Stars some though.

Re: 25NL Value Extraction with quads

Re: 25NL Value Extraction with quads

Well, I probably wouldn't have raised the flop. This is a perfect slowplaying hand. Given that you raised, I would have raised more to try to get your stack in. That means you can bet more on the...

Re: $25 basic squeeze spot

I think it is a pretty good spot against the SB. You will get the button to fold a ton and ATo should fair well this well postflop.

Actually, I think he probably would have bet a Q or maybe even a pair of 5's or 7's on the river. I think that he plays JJ-88/66/33 this way about 50% of the time collectively.

I think you can...
